And while price has always been the tie breaker, shoppers' perception of a cheaper price toward private label has dropped 8% since 2015.
Interestingly enough, some private-label brands are mistaken for manufacturer brands, perhaps because of their organic offerings or because the names themselves have moved away from value-centric phrases.
